Peak 11,874 is the unnamed peak closest to Blue Lake, located just to its southwest. As Blue Lake is only 3.5 miles from the Lake Sabrina trailhead, the peak is doable in a day and therefore does not require a permit if climbed in this manner. The peak sits just above the Baboon Lakes and for that reason, friends and I have dubbed it "Mount Congress."
Follow the trail from the Lake Sabrina trailhead up to Blue Lake over many switchbacks, gaining about 1300 feet. From there, proceed along the west side of Blue Lake to the trail intersection for Blue Lake, Donkey Lake, and Dingleberry Lakes. From here the aspect of the peak you wish to climb will determine the rest of the approach. If carrying light packs, the approach can probably be accomplished in about 2-2.5 hours depending on fitness and acclimatization.
